Default Dead Headlights and running lights

Bought truck brand new in January of this year...just 30,000 km...driving home tonight in foggy dusk and oncoming vehicles were flashing me...thought maybe had highbeams on but get home and realize I had no headlights whatsoever.

I usually keep my headlights set to auto and they come on and off no problems but tonight nothing...I can't even get them to turn on by turning the headlight switch on...also can't dim my dashlights.

When I pull the lever for highbeams they go on but don't stay on...no daytime running lights or rear lights either...brake lights work when I push brake pedal

I am going to drop it at the dealer in the morning but I was just wondering of any similar problems on here? I checked the fuses and they seemed fine...no mods or anything done to headlights...everything stock

I had a bit of an issue with 1 headlight ,but not both and the running lights. The drivers side headlight would come on sometimes...sometimes not. Turned out it was a loose connection on one of the plugs. Dealer tightened it up and put some die electric grease in to combat vibration a bit. So far so good. Hope yours is a quick easy fix too.

Thanks...glad it worked out for you...I will update when I find out what the problem is...I find it weird that I just had it at the dealer 2 days ago for and oil change, tire rotation, brake inspection, and battery load test as they had a special on...then 2 days later this...

Weird also yesterday I hit the auto up button on my driver's window and it goes halfway up then starts going down all by itself...never had any issues at all with this truck until yesterday the day after I pick it up from dealer

I hope they didn't arc something while performing the load test.

Well, dropped the truck off at the dealers this morning...they assured me right away that the problem has nothing to do with the servicing they did on Monday

Anyways, get a phone call around 5pm...they have no idea what the problem is and have never seen it before...they said they need it for another day to perform more diagnostics...

Got a 2012 Ram 2500 heavy duty diesel regular cab for a loaner vehicle...thing rides like a tank...what a difference from the 1500...I do really like that Cummins though

I will update more when I hear more from the dealer
